How Tess Learned to Read (in Two Months)!

learned to read learned to read

Tess was five, but had me worried because she had ZERO interest in reading. But in two months time, she not only learned to read, but developed a true love for books! Excited to share with you our experience and some practical tips.

Different books will resonate with different kids (that’s one of my takeaways), and, in our case, the books that my older kids liked weren’t the same ones that hooked Tess. Watch the video to see what she ended up loving; you may see some familiar titles. One thing that’s clear: girl has great taste:)
